Are you the boujee friend in your group? Can’t handle dollar beers and rail liquor any more? Want the club, but want a better drink? Well, DC now has the spot to fit every person in your posse.
In case you haven’t heard, a few weeks ago was the opening for Addendum, the intimate bar situated in the back of Eighteenth Street Lounge (ESL). ESL, which many know for its club atmosphere full of quick drinks and hella dancing, is looking to add a slower paced, quality cocktail bar in the back. Driven by bitters, cordials, and aromatized wines, this spot is perfect for the boujee friend on a night out.
If you know the DC bar scene, then you won’t be surprised to know the brains behind this idea were Lukas Smith and J.D. Quioco.
Inspired NYC’s Amor y Amargo and personal interest, these guys have honed in on some high-quality drinks without using citrus juices, sodas, or syrups. Without the use of those, you know they have to have quality products and liquors.
Excited to share their “baby” with the world, I got to hang out with them a couple weeks ago and learn more about the bar. But once I got the intro on the concept, then the real fun began!
So get your group together and head to Addendum in ESL this weekend – no other place in DC like it! It will surely be your new favorite spot. I’m already ready to head back.
Addendum is open Thursday–Saturday…7pm-1am on Thursdays and 7pm-2am Friday & Saturday.
